There were contradicting reports over why Juuko was rested against Zimbabwe, but coach Sebastien Desabre has confirmed the defender will get a start against Egypt. He has to ensure he stops the attackers from getting into the danger zones.
The former Gor Mahia midfielder brings much-needed composure in the Cranes midfield and always ensures attacks are not channeled through the middle. He will have to guarantee the hosts do not dominate the game or else his team will be in for a long run.

Okwi has been one of the most dangerous players for The Cranes and has been rewarded with two goals already at 2019 Afcon. Okwi is hungry for more, and that hunger will drive him to give his best against Egypt and fire his side to a first appearance at the knockout stages.
Miya has been the creative link for the Ugandans, and even if he has not managed to score, he still has created several chances for the strikers. Against Egypt, he will have to put more venom on the ball to ensure it is more effective and this will help his side to get the result they need to advance.
